Purpose: Our mission is to give an opportunity for families to work side-by-side one another to be a light for Christ in our community and to teach kids about service.
Theme Scriptures: Colossians 3:17 “And whatever you do in the word or deed, do all in the name of Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.”
Proverbs 22:6 “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.”
Plan: A few times a year we will serve in missions. These missions may be done on campus or out in the community. Some examples that we are working on are: making sandwiches for homeless families, retirement homes, care packages for homeless, care packages for soldiers, etc.
First Mission: Our first “deed” we are doing is through a non-profit called Hui o Ko’olaupoko. Hui o Ko’olaupoko. This project gives us an opportunity to get our hands, clothes and feet dirty! We will be improving water quality and increasing the habitat for native aquatic animal species by removing invasive plants and replanting native Hawaiian species along a portion of the He'eia Stream Estuary.
Where: He’eia State Park in Kaneohe
When: August 19, 2017
WEAR CLOTHES YOU DON’T MIND GETTING DIRTY!
Why this mission?: God gave us the Earth to subdue it and have dominion. Everything given to us from God needs to be protected and taken care of!
James 1:17 says, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights…”
Is the Earth good? Genesis tells us that God created everything and called it good. It is a gift from God and just like salvation God gives us a choice to receive the gift and honor it or to throw it away. God makes it clear what he wants us to do with the things he gives us. He wants us to multiply it which he tells us in Matthew 25:14-30.
